At least 31 people have been killed as result of a twin suicide blast in northeast Nigeria, AFP said, citing local officials.
“There were two suicide attacks and rocket-propelled grenade explosions in Damboa last night which killed 31 people and left several others injured,” the leader of the people’s militia, Babakura Kolo, told the AFP.
According to the media, the attacks could be carried out by the militants of the radical Islamist group Boko Haram, which is active in Nigeria.
Boko Haram is an Islamist terrorist group, operating in the western and central African region, which has pledged allegiance to the Daesh terrorist group.
Alongside with Nigeria, Niger, Cameroon and Chad are jointly carrying out a military campaign to battle the Islamists.
